1941 Watchtower Convention Condemns Olin R. Moyle. Scan of the resolution adopted by the Assembly of Jehovah's Witnesses in St Louis, Missouri condemning Olin R. Moyle. In 1939, Moyle resigned as legal counsel for Jehovah's Witnesses in a letter criticizing "Judge" J.F. Rutherford, second president of Jehovah's Witnesses. Rutherford published statements against Moyle which were held to be libelous in US Courts and Moyle was awarded $15,000 in damages. The Convention resolution against Moyle was mentioned in a 1941 Watchtower magazine issue (which is also included in this file).
